II semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Feb 14, 2022 al May 28, 2022.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, students: – will have acquired contents of Spanish linguistics, in particular variational, in a synchronic and diachronic perspective; – will be able to recognize and apply the treated aspects to the analysis of written texts or oral productions; – will have acquired the knowledge necessary to implement the teaching of Spanish L2 with special attention to the variational aspects of the language. Furthermore, C2 language level of competence in Spanish (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) is also required.


The aim of the course is to examine the key factors for the preservation of the unity of the Spanish language over the centuries, while outlining the elements of the divergence in the use of the language. To this end, the geographical area and social aspects will be taken into account, as well as the historically constituted - but variable - varieties and discursive models that speakers have at their disposal.

The course will enable students to acquire the necessary tools to distinguish the fundamental characteristics of linguistic variation in present-day Spanish, with particular attention to diatopic variation. Moreover, students will obtain a general view of the dialectal complexity of Spanish, also in view of its importance in the context of teaching Spanish as a foreign language (LE/L2).

The lectures will be organized as follows:
1. Introduction: the great history of the Spanish language.
2. Spanish around the world.
3. The linguistic variation (I): dialects, sociolects, registers.
4. The linguistic variation (II): technolects and styles.
5. Macrodialects of Spanish.
6. European dialects of Spanish.
7. American dialects of Spanish.
8. Unity and diversity of Spanish spelling.
9. Unity and diversity of Spanish sounds.
10. Unity and diversity of Spanish grammar.
11. Unity and diversity of Spanish lexicon and phraseology.
12. Unity and diversity of Spanish pragmatics.
13. The stylistic variation of Spanish.
14. Characteristics of the variation of Granada.

In addition to the content provided during the lectures, there will be practical analysis of written and oral documents in order to understand and apply the theoretical concepts already covered as well as lexicographic activity using dictionaries and other online resources. Critical reading of certain key texts will also be carried out.

To this end, each lecture will consist of a theoretical and a practical part, where either oral or written texts will be analyzed or the compulsory readings assigned each week will be discussed.

Examination Methods

The exam will be an oral test on theoretical and practical questions related to the course program, the mandatory bibliography and the teaching materials provided by the lecturer. The program of the course and the examination methods are the same for both attending and non-attending students.

The final mark will be expressed in a scale of 30 and will be the arithmetic mean between the grade obtained in the oral test and the grade from the Spanish proficiency exam (converted in a scale of 30 in accordance with the indications detailed in “Vademecum normativo per gli studenti dell'Area di Lingue e Letterature Straniere"). Exam results will be communicated as a notice in the dedicated section of the web page (“Avvisi”).


A C2 proficiency level is required, which corresponds to 3 CFUs out of the 9 awarded by the course.

The assessment of language competence is based on the certificates issued by the CLA (Centro Linguistico di Ateneo) or the Instituto Cervantes and it is a prerequisite for the exam with the lecturer. As detailed in "Vademecum normativo per gli studenti dell'Area di Lingue e Letterature Straniere", the C2 language certificate is valid for six years from the date of issue.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
